I've been wanting to make a wrist-cuff for a while now, but finally got around to it...
Sorry about the blurriness of the second pic!

Laying out flat:

in action:

Opinions anyone?

It was actually really easy! I'm not that good at explaining how to do stuff, but I'll try!

1. measure around your wrist, and decide how tall you want your bracelet to be. From those measurements cut a rectangle out of whatever fabric you want on the outside, and another one out of whatever you want on the inside. (I used bull-denim on the outside and just plain old broadcloth on the inside, mostly because that's what I had at home)
2. Next I stitched on the star outline, and put on the metal studs.
3. Next I sewed the 2 pieces together, good sides facing in. In the middle on one of the short sides I put a loop of ribbon with 2 rings on it(this is for the closure, sorta like a d-ring belt... sorry if this is confusing!) Leaving one side open to turn it.
4. Next I turned it right-side out, pressed it, folded in the raw edges, pinned it, and sewed around the outside with a 1/8" seam.
5. The last thing I did was put the ribbon with the square loop on. Basically I just attached the ribbon to the loop, then sewed the ribbon onto the bracelet.

To put it on you put the ribbon through both loops, and then double it back...
I hope this helps! Let me know if anything isn't clear!
Oh, and if you make one, make sure to put up pics for me to see!
